Change is inevitable.
So why is that I seem to wish things would stay the same? I guess because it's familiar.
I had a wonderful three day trip to southern California this past week. It was a gift from my Uncle Bob for my Aunt Ruth's birthday. We had fun reminiscing about the good old days. And now my aunt and uncle are called Nana and Pop Pop. Life changes and we all get older.
My younger cousins are now parents. This is Jake and Kate. It was such fun spending with them. I love their precious smiles and their energy. I have to say they look like Sumstad's.
Here's the family. Rod is my first cousin and eldest son of my Aunt Ruth who is my father's sister. His wife Jodi is a person I feel so relaxed around and hope to get to know even better.
I am heading to Florida tomorrow to visit my dad and brother and sister. Again, there are many changes that have occurred.
I get to meet Kenzie Lee for the very first time! Check out that adorable smile. Your great aunt Debbie is on her way. Brace those cheeks for lots of kisses.
Yes, life changes. Kids grow up. Many changes are good.
I'm slowly learning to embrace change. As I look around our small condo that we recently moved into, I realize that I'm smiling more. Greg and I are spending more time together. We are on the mend after many years of upheaval and ...change!
Nothing in this life is permanent without change. It's also teaching me to trust God.
Blessings and love,
